The letter 'I won't walk in park alone again in evening' (Citizen 28 September) describes a terrible incident for two park users.

However, the remark made by the two young girls about setting 'the animals on fire' highlights the reason why continuing to keep the Pet's Corner when Astley Park is revamped is wrong. Moving the Pet's Corner to the other side of the park and installing CCTV will not prevent the attacks on the animals.

Also, the animals will be nearer the site where the fireworks are set off on Bonfire Night and special events.

Encourage the natural wildlife for the children to observe.

In this day and age there is no place for Pet's Corners in public parks.
